“Pottstown Area Food Collaborative (PAFC): Collective Impact for a Local and Inclusive Food Economy”:

Trellis for Tomorrow is receiving grant funds as the lead agency for the Pottstown Area Food Collaborative (PAFC). PAFC is a cross-sector collaborative that is re-imagining how to allocate local assets and leverage resources to co-create a local food system that can better support the health and well being of the Greater Pottstown area and ultimately serve as a resource and model for the County. PAFC envisions a synergistic shift from a food security-oriented model to a food sovereignty model that prioritizes local, sustainable, community-centered food production and distribution. To this ultimate end, the collaborative is pursuing in an inclusive, intentional, stakeholder-engaged and evidence-based process to build a vision and a plan for a local and cooperative food economy in Pottstown.
